Casual Monday: Technical Difficulties and Jocko Willink's Discipline = Freedom

Listen on

Episode notes

Welcome to Casual Mondays. Yes we know they are being released on Tuesdays - but we record them every Monday so... deal with it.

In these episodes, Jan and RJ talk about their weekends and whatever adventure is coming up that week. Today, they spend a little bit of time complaining about technical difficulties, because who doesn't love when tech doesn't work on a Monday morning? 

They spend the rest of the podcast talking about the book Discipline Equals Freedom by Jocko Willink, and how much it influenced Jan's journey of building Apex after reading the book 6 years ago. RJ shares how discipline plays a role in his daily life, and why routine is important to him.
